U.S. Central Command’s 160th Signal Brigade will receive technological support from General Dynamics Information Technology under a five-year contract.
The award from the Army’s Network Enterprise Technology Command carries a potential value of $64.5 million.
“General Dynamics has a strong history with the 160th Signal Brigade and significant experience delivering advanced communications capabilities,” said Zannie Smith, senior vice president of the National and Homeland Security Division for General Dynamics Information Technology.
“We understand the importance of the brigade’s mission and the critical role it plays in supporting U.S. troops in the Middle East.”
